GMT for EST is -5

Local Time Subtract from UTC:
Atlantic Standard Four hours
Atlantic Daylight Three hours
Eastern Standard Five hours
Eastern Daylight Four hours
Central Standard Six hours
Central Daylight Five hours
Mountain Standard Seven hours
Mountain Daylight Six hours
Pacific Standard Eight hours
Pacific Daylight Seven hours
Alaskan Standard Nine hours
Alaskan Daylight Eight hours
Hawaiian Standard Ten hours

From the last Sunday in October through the last Saturday in March standard time is noted as Central Standard Time (CST), (EST), (MST) or (PST).

From the last Sunday in March through the Last Saturday in October daylight savings time is noted as Central Daylight Time (CDT), (EDT), (MDT) or (PDT) which is one hour added to standard time.

To convert GMT to local time, simply subtract 6 hours off the GMT to get CST, and subtract 5 hours off the GMT to get CDT. Your answer will be in a form of a 24 hour clock which is equivalent to what the military uses. For example, if you want to convert 20:00 GMT which is often written as 20Z to CST, you would subtract 6 hours off and end up with 14:00 hours CST. Since this is in the form of a 24 hour clock you would subtract 12 hours to get 2:00 PM CST.
